The main question you have to ask yourself when considering external training options is whether or not the decision is financially viable. You may decide that your money is best spent elsewhere and feel that you can take care of your own training in-house. This may be the better option for business owners as they will have full control and management over training procedures.

With more control over the training program itself, employers may find achieving the desired results becomes a lot easier and more efficient. Progression from training to the implementation of newly acquired skills may happen a lot smoother too, as you are able to oversee the whole development from start to finish. Nevertheless, it is worth bearing in mind that full control also denotes full responsibility.

Disruption to the Team

Many employers find that taking staff members outside of the working environment can cause disruption to the daily functionality of the business. Covering missing staff members, maintaining office unity and developing a set routine can become difficult when your business is in the middle of mass training programs. Such disruption may prevent in-house relationships from flourishing and may also lower the overall productivity of the business as a whole, whilst you see out the training period.

Lower the Risk and Reap the Rewards

On the other hand, external training offers your employees a chance to network on a larger scale, with businesses and individuals from both inside and outside of your industry. Although time spent away from the workplace may disrupt the day to day running of your business, for the staff members themselves training course can be a welcome break. Providing something different to the daily routine and offering new skills can be fantastic for staff and team morale.

External training also provides the opportunity for practical training your staff can implement immediately. Whilst on an external training course, staff will learn by doing and being hands on – but at no expense or risk to your business. Whilst training outside of the office, there are no consequences for their actions whilst they are learning. Training is provided by experienced practitioners with established results; this takes the trouble from your hands and lets professional trainers carry the responsibility.

Accessing additional guidance

The day-to-day running of a business is time consuming and hard enough without the responsibility of staff training. In-house training might be the cheaper option, but it is not the easiest or least taxing. More to the point, with external training programs you can have access to vast additional guidance, such as personal injury training or legal training. The expense might seem like a downfall at first glance, but in return your staff will have more skills to help move your business move forward.

    What Our Clients Say

    The problem when attending any personal injury legal training course is knowing whether you are actually going to learn anything new or find a different perspective, or whether you will just hear the same things that you have heard many, many times before.

    The good news with MASS Training is that you know it is always going to be the former case. MASS’ courses are practical, informative and excellent value for money. My staff always come back feeling inspired and energised by having their existing knowledge and expertise confirmed, but also by picking up some new practical steps that they can immediately implement to make them more efficient in their day to day tasks.

    I have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in wholeheartedly recommending MASS Training to anyone looking for Personal Injury Training. It is the best training available.

    MASS Training provide excellent content. The fact that they are in the main practising solicitors or legal executives means that not only do they fully understand their specialist subject matter, but they also know how to use this knowledge in the day to day running of their case load.

    If they are not currently running a course covering the area of law that they are interested I know that if I suggest it to them they will be happy to prepare a course for us either in-house or generally within a matter of weeks.

    We have in the past, and continue to, send our staff on the MASS Diploma Course, an excellent opportunity to develop essential skills and understanding for running RTA matters. If you are not yet ensuring your staff attend MASS Training courses, you are missing out on some of the best Personal Injury Training available.
